Your facial features are central to your overall aesthetic, so it is crucial to maintain the vibrancy of your skin. At Artemis Aesthetic Center, we offer many types of microneedling treatments to patients hoping to reduce wrinkles, sunspots, and acne scars.

PRP (Platelet-rich plasma) microneedling in Westminster is an optional enhancement. It rejuvenates your skin by promoting new, healthy cell growth. The treatment combines two techniques that stimulate the body’s growth and healing processes, resulting in skin that appears smooth and unblemished. If you want younger-looking and healthier skin but do not want to commit to an invasive procedure, PRP microneedling may be the best choice for you.

What is PRP Microneedling?

PRP microneedling treatments promote healthy skin growth by combining two different aesthetic techniques. Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation method that involves creating micro-injuries within the skin using thin, sharp needles to stimulate new skin growth. PRP is a concentration of proteins and platelets from your blood and helps speed up healing.

Benefits Over Other Procedures

Combining microneedling and PRP techniques allows for more impressive results than either procedure alone. The proteins and platelets found within PRP help the micro-injuries heal faster than they would with a traditional microneedling treatment. Further, combining the two techniques shortens the recovery period and minimizes side effects after treatment.

A PRP microneedling treatment could address many aesthetic concerns, including:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Acne scarring
  • Uneven skin texture or tone
  • Sun damage
  • Large pores
  • Surgical scars

This effective procedure could help you achieve skin that looks brighter, healthier, and more even in texture and tone.

What to Expect During Treatment

PRP therapy uses injections made from a concentration of the patient’s own platelets. We first draw a small amount of the patient’s blood and then place it in a centrifuge that isolates the platelets and forms the PRP solution.

During a PRP microneedling session, your aesthetician will use microneedling to create the micro-injuries that stimulate new cell formation.

Next, the PRP is applied topically onto the micro-injuries or injected across the skin. After a treatment session, the body begins to naturally heal the micro-injuries with new skin cells while removing dead, damaged cells. While the skin heals, the PRP decreases swelling and redness, ensures proper healing, and reduces the necessary recovery time.

Recovering from a PRP Microneedling Procedure

PRP microneedling treatments are minimally invasive and require a short recovery period. Four to five days after treatment, it is typical to experience redness, tenderness, soreness, and mild bruising on the face. More severe side effects rarely occur but can include swelling, acne breakouts, oozing, and small bumps on the skin. Infections are also possible if bacteria enter the micro-injuries, but you can avoid this side effect by following your aftercare instructions carefully.

Are You an Ideal Candidate for Treatment?

PRP microneedling can be a great way to smoothen your skin and restore your youthful appearance. However, not everyone is a suitable candidate for the treatment. This procedure may not be right for you if you have the following medical conditions:

  • Active acne
  • Skin conditions (rosacea, psoriasis, eczema)
  • Infection on the face
  • History of scarring or bruising easily
  • Chronic illness
  • HIV
  • Platelet or blood disorder

Our aesthetic team could help you determine whether you would be a good candidate for this procedure and brainstorm alternative treatment options if necessary.
